There’s nothing worse than the dread that hits you at 2 am when you realize you’re running out of time to get your baby onto a bottle before going back to work! Working mums usually have very little choice but to introduce a bottle into their feeding routine, so if you’ve begun trying to get baby to take a bottle or still haven’t tried yet, it’s important to understand why choosing your bottle carefully is crucial. New mum Cindy found Minbie such a “game-changer” because it’s designed to truly support & protect breastfeeding.
“It was so difficult going from breastfeeding to bottle feeding. My daughter wouldn’t take anything! I tried so many bottles. I did my research and bought Minbie. I’ve never looked back” - Cindy
Stop wasting money!
So many Mums who are facing a return to work, fall into the trap of buying a collection of generic bottles because they assume a bottle is a bottle. This is simply not the case and as Cindy found, will leave you open to wasting hundreds of dollars on bottles that just won’t work and will confuse your breastfed baby. This is where many mums find themselves in hot water.
Why is Minbie different?
When it’s time to head back to work, you want to know your baby is still feeding using the same technique they would if you were there. No one wants to be spending their days worrying about whether or not their baby is feeding ok at daycare! You deserve the reassurance and peace of mind that baby's feeding well and when bedtime comes, will latch onto your breast just as before (if not a little more expertly). This is what the Minbie teat offers you. Minbie has been designed to create a stronger bond, giving you the freedom to safely offer a bottle without risk.
Unfortunately, most standard bottles you buy off the shelf don't have teats with the ability to replicate the way babies instinctively feed on the breast, so naturally, they create confusion for little ones. That standard, round shape of most teats allows bub to extract the milk easily and quickly causing wind, colic and other painful problems. With these generic teats your little one doesn't have to work for their feed or use their instinctive latching technique making them ‘lazy feeders’. So, when you get home, you’ve got a grizzly baby & a struggle on your hands.
Minbie supports your breastfeeding even when you’re not there
Minbie is a new technology! Babies who feed from a Minbie bottle are practicing their instinctive breastfeeding muscle memory. Your little one will practice latching properly onto the breast and work for the feed with their complex and instinctive breastfeeding technique. This technique is the best for protecting the longevity of the mother-baby breastfeeding relationship and is exactly the technique you want bub using when you just can’t be there!
What are the benefits of using Minbie?
The Minbie Complete Package will make sure you’re ahead of the game when it comes to handing over to bub's caregiver. You'll have a comfortable portable pump, a collection of bottles that support & protect your breastfeeding as well as a fast, effective steriliser that will take the hard work out of sterilising & drying bottles and keep your precious bub safe from germs. (The steam steriliser also has the added benefit of steam cleaning, just make sure you've washed everything in soapy water and rinsed before popping them in.) All this comes with a free bottle warmer right now so be prepared, buy it now and get free fast shipping!
Minbie makes the return to work stress-free for many breastfeeding Mums
Cindy, like many mums, needed a bottle she could rely on for the 'back-to-work' support she and her baby needed. Minbie is able to offer this support to parents because of the functionality of the teat. Our teat supports your baby to latch on like its mum, training their breastfeeding muscle memory, helping you to see seamless transitions from the bottle back to the breast when you get home.
